Tetrapogon cenchriformis and Parapholis strigosa, (Poaceae), Two New Reports from Pakistan
Tetrapogon cenchriformis and Parapholis strigosa (Poaceae) are reported for the first time in Pakistan. Tetrapogon cenchriformis is characterized by spatheolate inflorescence, oval elliptic seeds and large stomatal complex, while Parapholis strigosa has long anthers and straight spikes. Anthers are larger in P. strigosa than in Parapholis incurva (L.) C.E. Hubb. These two new reported species showed marked difference from the other species of Parapholis and Tetrapogon treated in flora of Pakistan.
